    Do I just use one speaker for the ES/EX rear center? The same type of surround speaker I have for my rears?
    Also, will a colorstream component cord work for progressive scan dvd or is there also a progressive scan component cord?

    The answer lies with the type of the set up. The larger the space the more you will need two speakers to create a more diffused soundfield. I have one direct radiating speaker (Polk RT-25i) and since the sweet spont is not that large and the distance from back wall to front wall is about 18 to 20 feet the one speaker did it for me since the chair is about 5 feet from the rear wall. As for the colorstream cord, any cord that's 75ohm is perfect for component video. Remember they all have to be 75ohms and not like video audio cords that's available. Some people make the mistake thinking that those cords are enough.

    This question has been asked multiple times.
    Although some receivers DO give the option for one rear, THX specifically states TWO rears since there's some correlation processing.
